The Bachelor - Chris Soules - Full Season

Surprised no one at all has started this thread. I love watching it to see how crazy, stupid, drunk, psycho they can all be.

And we definitely will be getting some of that this season.

Note, for those that like comedy and consider watching this, Jimmy Kimmel will be on, I think, one or two episodes. He's a big fan (or maybe ABC really likes to cross-promote). Should be interesting.

Because it's pretty much a worthless show (IMO)that pretty much always ends with divorce or a break up that gets told via "People" magazine every single season.

I'm shocked folks still watch this drek.

Doesn't surprise me at all. I see Bachelor Pad/Bachelor in Paradise in their futures.

Except for the seasons when it doesn't. Granted, there's only a few (4 marriages I can think of) but that's certainly not "every single season."

I watched but probably won't be paying very close attention for the rest of the eps. I couldn't get to ep 1 until I got back from CES.

I was surprised (or not?) that Lacy said "80/40" again. Drunk Tara was kinda funny.

I watch too! Of COURSE it's a terrible show and they aren't really expecting real relationships (although they've had a couple). These are people who want to be on national TV, not get married. But the drunks, the craziness, the evil person, the sweet person, the behavior under stress - it's good fun. Don't take it seriously and you might enjoy it. Not everything on TV has to be elevating.

I love reading the blogs the next day - some of them are hilarious.

I watched the premiere as I like to see the first night and who he picks, who gets drunk (of course) and what drama will unfold in the season.

Gotta say from the preview it looks pretty promising. It will the "best one ever"!!

Spoiler:
Also, no doubt the producers made him pick the drunk girl.

Episode Aired Jan 19 2015

It's official. Chris' laugh is as annoying as Whitney's voice; they're perfect together! Seriously, he clearly fell hard for her on that date. Loved the wedding crasher idea.

Anyone want to place odds on the entire house coming down with mono?

Last night's episode was (co)hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

It was hilarious. Jimmy created dates (like go shopping for him at Costco) and went on dates, which was hilariously awkward, like discussion about the fantasy suite.

Who goes into the particulars of their husband's suicide when they first meet someone?

Of course, this would be something you would discuss at some point in your relationship, but you aren't even IN a relationship!!! You haven't even had a single date with this guy!!!

Yikes...

I don't watch this show, but I'm just curious - This guy in the new season (hard to ignore, even though I don't watch, because he's in previews and magazines) I find to be seriously creepy-looking. But he seems to be promoted as some hunky god-man.

Do others really see him as hot?

Probably just trying to play the sympathy card to try and get him to keep her. Of course, I think strategies like this are not sound. But what do I know.

Clearly NYNY doesn't! Lessening the more I get to know his personality as revealed on the show and hearing his laugh (such a deal-breaker!), but, yeah, I think he's attractive.

I think Chris is really boring.

I am guessing the producers thought so, too - which is why they brought in Kimmel to shake things up. I think he will be back again, too.

Otherwise, this is gonna be a big ole yawn-fest.

I have decided that since Chris is so boring, they have enlisted a group of stupid, psychotic women to keep things interesting.

Kelsey is downright creepy. The Twitter-verse is convinced that she murdered her husband. Something there just ain't right...

And the moron who thought New Mexico was part of Mexico? And said it was her first time leaving the country? Ai Carumba.

And the Virgin has to go. She is just annoying the crap out of me. "Chris deserves someone who isn't fake." Uh - have you LOOKED at your eyelashes lately???

And through it all, Chris is just this big, boring lump. The man has NO personality.

None.

Right now, I think Brit is the front-runner - they seem to have real chemistry and their conversations seem the most "normal". And she is just dumb enough to think lumpy is an interesting guy.

I really do love this show!!!

I personally like the one Chris' sisters picked. But yeah, even she's too good for him.

Looking forward to The Women Tell All episode. If it wasn't for the cameras or that ABC chose him, none of these women would be swooning for him like they do.

I confess that this is a guilty pleasure and my husband watches it too, although he would not like that publicized.

Kelsey is a serious narcissist. Did you read the obit she wrote for her husband's death? All about her. She "loves her story?" Who SAYS that, much less thinks it.

The Virgin is like a 3 year old. She whines and tantrums and her eyelashes look like a feather duster.

I think the most boring woman who has screentime is Whitney and I think Chris likes her and has since they "crashed" the wedding. He shakes just about every time he sees her, big boy that he is. He can't control his giggles when handing her a rose.

He's the perfect farmboy antisocial nerd although I say "perfect" loosely. He's a huge bore and never has a real conversation (not even a fake real one). He acts like a kid in a candy store, no masculinity showing at all, it's like he's 14 and has never seen women, which might be true.

I don't think Britt will win but I thought she could be the new Bachelorette until last week. I think the lies and insincerity she displayed might keep her out. I think one of the girls we haven't seen much of yet will have to come out of the woodwork, or they are in trouble.

THis group of women is the craziest group ever. And, they must really be pissed at Chris's unwillingness to travel. At least the other girls on other seasons got Europe and the Caribbean and beaches. They get Santa Fe and South Dakota, lol.

The fact that Kelsey is a guidance counselor is downright scary. I certainly hope that is just the title they attached to her and she isn't actually interacting with students given that she's a completely delusional narcissist.

Becca's the dark horse in this fight, but she doesn't seem to be getting enough screen time to be the next bachelorette ....

I had to look that up. Ebola comes up as a reason. But is it him? The Producers? Either way, these girls did get...ummm...screwed!

Google jade elizabeth playboy and find out why he doesn't end up with her. I've read (not seen first-hand) that some of the pics are extremely raunchy.

I think raunchy is a little extreme, at least for playboy. I heard from a little birdy that some of her pics are quite beautiful.

You can't give them too much of a fairy tale. The winner has to live in middle-of-nowhere, Iowa. If they don't like South Dakota, maybe that's a sign.

Um, no. Raunchy.

Unless you and I define that word entirely differently.

Yikes! I agree. Raunchy! Wasn't difficult at all to find. Why would you do that and expect to be taken seriously? No way he picks her.
